Honey Garlic Sausage, cased
Cooking the sausages and beans in the same pan allows the beans to soak up all flavourful juices from the sausages.
Wash and dry all produce.* Peel and cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. In a medium pot, combine the potatoes with enough salted water to cover (approximately 1-2 inches). Boil over high heat, until the potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min.
Meanwhile, mince or grate the garlic. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (double for 4 ppl) oﬀ the stems. Finely chop the parsley. Drain and rinse the beans.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then sausages. Cook until browned, 2-3 min per side. Transfer sausages to a plate. Set aside. (NOTE: It’s okay if they aren't cooked through at this step – you'll finish cooking them later!) Add another drizzle of oil to the pan, then onions and thyme. Cook until softened, 3-4 min.
Add the garlic, beans, tomatoes, 1/2 tbsp brown sugar (double for 4 ppl), 2 tsp smoked paprika (double for 4 ppl) and 1/4 cup water (double for 4 ppl) to the same pan. (NOTE: We sent you more sugar and paprika than you need! Save remaining for another kitchen adventure.) Bring mixture to a gentle boil then, nestle in the sausages and any juices from the plate.
Cover and cook until sausages are cooked through, 6-7 min. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 71°C/160°F, as size may vary.**) Meanwhile, when potatoes are tender, drain and return them to the same pot. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes until smooth. Stir in 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 ppl) and 1 tbsp milk (double for 4ppl) and half the parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
Remove the sausages from the bean mixture, then thinly slice. Divide the mashed potatoes between plates. Top with the bean mixture and sausages. Sprinkle over the remaining parsley.
